The radio drama output in the UK, from 1960 to 2015, was some of the best written and acted in the world. It is a facet of the now dead notions of High Culture that once existed in Great Britain. Whether adaptations or new work, they are 110% more stimulating, entertaining and thought-provoking than any of the trash of modern drama that millions sit glued to 24/7.

The videos here are originally audio recordings made using analogue equipment (a reel to reel tape recorder, attached to a radio via 5 pin DIN cable, with the start and ending of the recording dome manually). Many of the recordings - some are 65 + years old - are variable in quality, and should be enjoyed for what they are.
